is way up in the polls, says he will get rid of it if elected. >> the obama administration is denying a report that advisers considered replacing vice president biden in the 2012 campaign. the claim, though not the first we have heard of it, comes in a new book. fox news media analyst howaurd curts tells us who was next in line. >> a new book monday which happened to be obtained by the times and then the post, said white house officials considered replacing joe biden on the ticket. it's a political eye opener from what we heard in the amateur, which reported the white house put out feelers to see if hillary clinton was interested in taking over the vice president's spot. this latest book now reports that the president's top aides ordered polling and focus groups in late 2011 to determine whether biden should be booted and replaced by clinton. but the idea was dropped after the research found that an obama/clinton ticket wouldn't do much to boost the president's chances. bill daley, who was then the white house chief of staff, told the "new york times" it was due diligence to at least
to make. the saudis have been very concerned that the obama administration simply hasn't done enough to try to bring the civil war in syria to an end, and they have made their pleasure known. one, by not takingun of the non-permanent seat did on the u.n. security council. and, two, by deciding to not take part in certain diplomatic and military operations with the u.s. where these things would normally happen otherwise. so this is a chance for saudis to express concerns to kerry, not just about syria but also about iran. the saudis are very concerned about the iranians trying to assume a greater role in regional politics, and it doesn't want to be pushed out. so kerry has to go with listening to these concerns, trying to placate the saudis as best he can. >>> in syria, government forces tried to quell much government controlled areas. assad's regime has tried to secure that area from months. video shows thick smoke. al jazeera cannot verify these videos. more than 100,000 people have been killed since that war began two and a half years ago. >>> meanwhile, another area of syria, a gi

is accusing the obama administration of doing. one of violating pakistani sovereignty by launching a military attack on pakistani soil without islamabad's permission. the other thing that islamabad is accusing washington of doing is essentially scuttling - that's the pakistani's word, an effort to broker peace talks with the taliban. the pakistani's are arguing with the death of hakimullah mehsud, everything that they have been trying to achieve has been put back to square one. as a result the pakistani citizens will be at a higher risk of suffering from taliban attacks within the borders. >> hasn't the pakistani government been cooperating with the u.s. and the c.i.a. drone program all along. >> it's quite by assumed that the pakistani government has cooperated with the bush administration and the obama administration on the drone strike program. it's been the obama administration that has increased the frequency of the attacks - some would argue out of a sense that the pakistanis haven't been doing enough to crackdown on taliban and al qaeda activity within its borders. recently there was a

an entity? >> there are issues. there are things that are valid concerns. we know the obama administration would like to be -- would like to leave a positive -- a positive environmental legacy. >> i have to ask you. why are the first three phases done? what is the difference? >> it is the increase in production. the additional 830,000 barrels per day. when you have an industrial project, it is not the same thing as being able to see the great wall of china from space. the magnitude of this project is monumental and there are environmental issues that need to be dressed. instead of trying to completely stop this project, i would hope that they would make sure the industry is held to the highest standards in the production of this oil. if the market is there -- >> the environmental impact study that was done, even that report came back from the epa, there are some things in this report that are not substantiated. if you look at the technologies being used to build this pipeline, no kidding, no college boy effort, they have gone the extra mile to make sure there is little to no impact. all th

of obamacare despite, despite the president's promises. according to news reports, the obama administration knew for at least three years that millions, millions of americans would not be taoeubl keep their health -- able to keep their health coverage. the president's press secretary basically admitted that americans would lose coverage too. this is the same president who said -- and i quote -- "if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what." that is what the president said. this is one of the many reasons americans feel betrayed. one woman quoted in "the los angeles times" put it this way -- this is what she said -- "all we've been hearing for the last three years is if you like your policy, you can keep it. i'm infuriated because i was lied to." here's how one north carolinian put it to nbc news: "everybody's worried about whether the web site works or not, but that's fixable. that's just the tip of the iceberg. this stuff isn't fixable." that was after he lost a $228 a month plan and was faced with a choi

what they're doing to motivate them. and why the obama administration says it's so important. >> the obama administration wants young people to sign up for obama care -- >> because of my income as a student. >> so now in an effort to woo healthy young people-- the white house is pushing a new study that shows nearly half of uninsured americans between the ages of 18 and 34 can get health insurance plans for less than 50 bucks a month. >> ultimately you need the young healthy people to be enrolled in order to keep the risk pool balanced and insure that you've got affordable premiums in the long run. >> without young people-- premiums could spike - or worse - too many sick, costly patients would be enrolled and the system could fail. but what's the incentive for a young person to sign up? with a problem plauged website -- signing up online has been a headache-- and for someone who is young and completely healthy. they may not feel the need to get insurance. but president barrack obama thinks otherwise. he made his case in a recent interview on fusion-tv. >> i kind of remember w
that the obama administration and obama campaign could realize that the former president is a huge asset for them and perhaps they better make sure that they're working with him and communicating with him. but i think the biggest tidbit everybody is talking about is obviously this switch between hillary clinton and joe biden. but also what i want to know is what's in there about governor chris christie particularly some of the things in his background back when he was working as an sec lobbyist. and a think all of those details will be out shortly and you can no doubt bet people will be looking for clues for the potential gop frontrunner for 2016. >> the book said he did not choose chris christie because he had too many political land mines. so what might be some of the problems he faces if he chooses to run in 2016. >> what's also interesting is that the christie spokesperson put out a statement actually saying that he was very forthcoming with the romney campaign, so they actually issued a response. i think that there are going to be tons of questions everyone's vetted for 2016 as you go throug

with obama care and that's happening, too. the administration points out this is information that's been out there a long time and in a statement today, the white house said in part, these protections will improve the plans that insurance companies offer today unless you're in the same plan that you were in when the law passed which is grandfathered out of these changes. in other words, nothing in the act forces people out of their health plans because the law allows plans that covered people at the time the law was enacted to continue to offer that same coverage to the enrollees. so it's a little bit complicated. there might have been an oversell when trying to get this through. >> a lot of people now who like, presumably liked their plans are being told they're no longer eligible for those plans and getting letters from blue cross, blue shield from kaiser and other companies saying in order to comply with the much more intense requirements of obama care this plan you used to be on no longer exists. >> something like 300,000 people with florida blue alone in the state of florida getting tha

one week ago from the obama administration's self-labeled war room, where officials focus on implementing the law and their concern is that once the healthcare.gov website glitches are worked out, some consumers will go online and be disappointed with high prices and limited choice. according to the notes from october 28th, quote, mike described a general concern of p.m. or project management, quote, getting to the point where the website is functioning properly and individuals begin to select plans, the media attention will follow individuals to plan selection and their ultimate choices and in some cases, there will be fewer options than would be desired to promote consumer choice and an ideal shopping experience. additionally, in some cases, there will be relatively high cost plans. project management is a reference to those individuals in the obama administration tasked with standing up the affordable health care law at the center for consumer information and insurance oversight. the discussion appeared to be in reference to an october 24th story by the "new york times"

"the wall street journal" quoted a senior u.s. official as saying the nsa made the surveillance decisions. the newspaper says the official account of what happened suggests president obama went nearly five years without knowing about the spying on world leaders. it reports obama was briefed on broader intelligence collection priorities, but didn't make decisions on specific targets. and it says the president only learned of the spying after his administration launched internal and external probes of national security agency operations a few months ago. the decision followed revelations by former nsa contractor, edward snowden, who said agents had been secretly gathering the phone and internet data of private citizens. u.s. officials tell "the wall street journal" that american agents have suspended spying on merkel and other world loaders, but they say the agency is still monitoring other leaders because some of the programs are producing useful intelligence. >>> smo

administration has manipulated the political system very unfairly especially as it applies to obama's own supporters. i recommend that you read that because it might be relevant in your own political life. secondly, there is an interesting head line that i think is far more important. chronicle has 26 people get 59.7 million over sandusky. i would like to propose how prevalent is homosexual crime especially child molestation. i think that's an important subject that is a lot more important that sugary drinks. the next head line from the chronicle as prosecutor. secret formula used for corruption. it mentioned the los angeles times received the pulitzer prize for the bell corruption case especially all the ugly details. i would like to suggest that chronicle and examiner do the same here in san francisco and they would probably win a pulitzer prize. the other head lines as jury finds -- what a real shame the city would stab it's own firefighters on these promotional task. if you treat the firemen that way, shame on you. >> good evening. kids are still being shot in this culture of ours.

as we know with the obama administration they communicate mainly with leaks to the press. the latest one is to the wall street journal which said that president obama discovered the world leaders being surveyed after an internal review discovered that in the summertime. president obama then asked for the surveillance of angela merkel's phone to be cease. not so with various world leaders if there are other world leaders watching right now you are not out of the woods yet. this is a push back from germany media that president obama was briefed about the surveillance in 2010. not only did the president say that surveillance should continue, he ordered that intelligence come from out of that surveillance come directly to the white house and out of the national security agency. we expect the press briefing from the white house, the official line to come in the coming hours. >> and there is an european delegation come together white house today. what do they hope to accomplish? >> reporter: we should bear in mind that this delegation has long been organized. the european parliament has an inq

to the wall street journey, this is the main way the obama administration communicates with us to the press and to the world despite their crackdown on whistle blowers. the fact that president obama knew nothing and it was a review that took place in the white house that 35 world leaders were being surveyed, including angela merkel. as soon as he saw that he stopped the surveillance on angela merkel. if you're not a world leader you're not out of the woods, apparently. but in reports in the german media as early as 2010 the director of national security recreation told mr. obama personally that ms. merkel's phone was being tapped. president obama not only allowed that to continue, but any intelligence from that surveillance went directly to the white house, and didn't even go through the nsa. certainly there is push back from the white house. owofficials from the obama administration saying there is nothing on the records there. and fundamental questions are being raised about president obama's knowledge of all this, and if he doesn't know, why doesn't he know about this. >> it seems a face
chuck todd seems to be carrying the water for the obama administration by blaming the insurance companies, bob, for the new revelation that millions will lose their coverage under obama care. >> they put themselves in the hands of the insurance companies. they were making promises that they were hoping the insurance companies were going to keep, but when you think about that initial statement, and at the time, all of us said we're highly skeptical of how he could make that promise. i never understood why he said if you like your health care plan you can keep it because he was relying somehow on the insurance companies. >> no, no. >> dana, your thoughts on that. that's exactly what we were talking about in the "a" block. >> it is, that's why we'll talk about it again because it's so compelling. when the president was saying if you want -- if you like your health care you can keep, it it was basically the mantra of the entire campaign, people that questioned that, looking at the facts, we were considered crazy and hateful and racist, and you name all of the things, and now the med

to this investigation, the obama administration was not exactly in the dark about this. and fact, they have done this to be the case for at least three years. obamacare regulations from july 20 10th specifically say that, because of normal turnover rates, 40% to 60% of customers and insurance policies would lose their grandfather status. that means customers on those plans would have to switch. the white house would not dispute that many policyholders would have to change their plans. in the vast majority of cases, the same insurers will automatically ship them to a plan that divides the new consumer protections. and for nearly half of the market and really is, discount or premium tax credits. like it or not, the method hasas changed in the white house says that it is for the better. on capitol hill today, the mother of trayvon martin called on lawmakers to work with state and local officials to reevaluate the purpose of the controversial stand your ground law. stand your ground is the piece of legislation that took front and center -- when george zimmerman was put on trial for the death of tray
